  11. Allardyce does it again? – After a poor start to the season, Crystal Palace sacked Alan Pardew and hired Sam Allardyce to get them out of trouble. He has successfully kept Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United and Sunderland in the Premier League in the past.

  12. The longest Premier League wait.. – Liverpool signed Austrian goalkeeper Alex Manninger last summer, 14 years after leaving Arsenal, with whom he won the Premier League and F.A. Cup double in 1998. He is yet to make an appearance for the Anfield club, having been signed as back up. If he does make an appearance, however, he will set a record for the longest gap between Premier League appearances. His last game at this level was in a 3-2 defeat away to Southampton in May 2001, almost 16 years ago.

The Big Debate.. Arséne Wenger

He’s been the manager of the Gunners for about 21 years now and has not won the league with them since the 2003-2004 season, many fans and people are against the fact that he should be a manager for the next season. Should Arséne retire or should he keep going.? What do you think?

#wengerin / #inwengerwetrust or #wengerout ? Please comment! Thanks.

In my opinion he should give up the place for 1 year to Thierry Henry and see the difference between the results of the two managers, if there is no difference or Henry did worse, than Arséne should be brought back but if Henry gives better results or maybe even wins them the league I guess Wenger should give the job to Henry and retire.

But Wenger has his own plans in a recent press conference he made some remarks which you can read by clicking the link below.
